I am Mr. Downing and have been at Antioch for 34 years. I taught 6th grade math for 8 years, then was the Director of Technology for 14. Missing the classroom, I came back 12 years ago and have been teaching 6th grade math ever since. I want the kids to enjoy being in class, and learn how math is and has been used to make our world great! I'm here to help!
